What To Expect In Your Mesothelioma Lawsuit

What To Expect In Your Mesothelioma Lawsuit

If you’ve been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, you should consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm today. Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure, has no known cure.  The only recompense that many people living with this disease have is to file a lawsuit against the parties responsible for the exposure. As with any legal matter, you should first learn what to expect from such a lawsuit before you contact any mesothelioma attorneys.

When You Can Sue

It can take decades before you start to develop symptoms of mesothelioma. Most states have a statute of limitations of up to two years from your diagnosis of Mesothelioma to file a lawsuit. This means if you have recently been diagnosed, you must act quickly. Make sure to consult with an experienced asbestos lawyer to learn more information on the statute of limitations for your state.

If you’ve recently lost a loved one to mesothelioma, there may still be time for you to file a lawsuit.  Typically, a family member has between one and three years from date of death to file a lawsuit. The best way to receive accurate legal information is to speak with a law firm that has experience with asbestos related lawsuits.

How Long Does a Mesothelioma Case Take?

Most people will receive some compensation in less than a year, but this is dependent on a number of factors. There have been instances of lawsuits lasting over two years, but most courts understand that mesothelioma patients have a short life expectancy and fast-track mesothelioma lawsuits.

You do want to act quickly when it comes to a mesothelioma lawsuit, but you should also take as much time as you need to speak to different attorneys, so that you are making the right decision.
